    Advising on the mandates that matter most – wherever our clients do business

    How we work around the world

    We recognise that our clients think globally, and so do we. We focus on what our clients value, wherever they do business. It isn’t just about the capacity to advise in different countries. It’s about working through the issues in each country to deliver integrated solutions – no matter how ambitious or how many obstacles.

    A wealth of global experience

    Our people have decades of experience working in teams around the world. Each year we typically help our clients do business in over 150 countries. Since 2009 we’ve handled a higher value of cross-border deals than any other firm, globally. We are the only advisers top-tiered for litigation and arbitration by Chambers Global. We rank No.1 globally for antitrust, investigations, capital markets and tax.

    Lawyers who know the markets as well as they know the law

    Our clients value lawyers who think globally, who know what it takes to operate successfully across barriers of culture and language and who provide advice that’s both technically sound and takes into account the dynamics of specific markets. The quality and training of our people is key. More than 200 Freshfields lawyers are ranked as ‘leaders in the field’ by Chambers Global 2015 and our firm comprises 78 nationalities who speak more than 70 languages.

    The right team for every job

    We pick the best Freshfields people for the job, sharing our experience and knowledge across the firm. We’ve also spent many years building relationships with leading national law firms in markets where we do not have a physical presence and delivering our experience for clients as one team across Freshfields and with relevant leading national lawyers.

  • 'When I have a problem that’s multifaceted, Freshfields does a great job of bringing to bear the different expertise I need and synthesising it for me'.
